Eventually, we reach the Slovenian town of Kobarid before sunset, and arrive at the Hvala Hotel, where we can't wait to soothe our aching muscles in a jacuzzi.
Gosar, "Site effects and soil-structure resonance study in the Kobarid basin (NW Slovenia) using microtremors," Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences, vol.
The Battle of Caporetto (October 24-November19, 1917) between a combined force of 350,000 Germans and Austro-Hungarians and 400,000 Italians was fought near the town of Kobarid, In.
Since in the last years microtremor site effects and soil-structure resonance studies were performed also in four other towns (Bovec, Kobarid, Ilirska Bistrica and Brezice) where the seismic hazard is increased, we decided to consider larger building stock in which microtremor measurements were conducted to derive fundamental resonance frequencies (Gosar and Martinec, 2009; Gosar, 2009; Gosar, 2010; Gosar, 2012).
From Bovec we spent the next day on the trip's longest walk - a 13-mile trail following the Soca further down its course to the small town of Kobarid. We stayed at the modernised Hotel Hvala in the pretty central square, which was described by Ernest Hemingway in his 1929 semi-autobiographical war novel 'A Farewell to Arm's, although he used the town's Italian name of Caporetto.
